Why I Love This Recipe

Always a hit with the kids, this family favorite cookie is originally from Betty Crocker.


Ingredients You'll Need

1/2 cup shortening
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup dark brown sugar, firmly packed
1/2 cup white sugar
1 large egg
1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp. baking powder
3/4 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt


Directions

In a bowl, beat the shortening, peanut butter and sugars until creamy. Add egg and beat to mix in.


In a separate bowl, sift together the dry ingredients making sure to incorporate them together well. You can also just mix them together with a whisk.


Add the flour mixture to the shortening mixture and mix until just incorporated. Chill for 1 hour.


Using a small scoop make balls about the size of ping-pongs and arrange on an ungreased cookie sheet.


Using a fork, dipped in sugar, flatten each cookie in a criss-cross pattern.


Bake in a preheated 350 degrees F oven for about 12 minutes.


Remove from oven and let set on cookie sheet for about 1 minute, then carefully transfer your cookies using a spatula to a cooling rack.


Makes about 2 dozen delicious cookies.
